Sparkling Punjab by Vijay Singal and Atul Bhardwaj is a soulful journey through every nook and corner of the land called Punjab. Capturing diverse facets of Punjabi life social, religious and cultural ethos of the land, where emotions are still valued and values bear an emotional tinge, the book traverses through the mind, heart and palate of a common Punjabi. This is a land pulsating with prosperity. Emerald green fields, robust rustic ways, warm and welcoming hospitality, valour and sacrifice have been brought to life through over 400 breathtaking pictures and vibrant narrative in this book. Pictures shot so brilliantly in the urban as well as rural surroundings not only depict appropriately the religious, historical and modern monuments but also describe graphically day to day life of a common man. Legendary tales of love, which flourished here, literature, music and dances of Punjab, the Punjabi entrepreneurship that has made a mark on the world, and much more will enthrall the reader. Take a walk with us through the lush greenery of Punjabs fields. Join us on a tractor ride with the farmers of the Punjab where the green revolution took root in India. Have buffalo buttermilk with us freshly offered by the proud farmers. Come dance with us you will not fail to smile, as we immerse you in the exuberant spirit that is Punjab.
